Granite picked out
We didn't go with granite through Ryan because for our subdivision the kitchen alone was $5300 which is way out of line. We went to an independent granite yard yesterday and probably walked passed 200 slabs, and the original color we liked months ago is the one we still like. We decided on Azul Platino. The picture below isn't our actual slab, I forgot to take a picture, but close enough. So we are getting the entire kitchen and both bathrooms done for $4400. Can't beat that. Almost $1000 less AND get the bathrooms done. In our house we really wanted consistency. In our old house, the kitchen cabinets were different than each bath vanity, and each bath vanity was different. Also every counter/sink surface was different. This time around we wanted cohesion and a consistent flow. So the cabinets are the same white Rushmore throughout, and all the granite will be the same too. So the granite place will come in as soon as the cabinets are put in to measure. Then we'll have the granite installed hopefully about 3 days after close.
